My old psychiatrist retired (probably to devote himself full-time to his drinking hobby) and was replaced by a new psychiatrist. Unlike the old guy, the new lady is less than […]

My reblogs of my own Instagram snaps seem to be among the posts which you hate the least, so I’m continuing with this non-challenge and presenting another week’s worth of […]

My Perfectly Average Silhouette

WordPress’s Daily Post is being clairvoyant today. The prompt of the day is silhouette, which I noticed just after posting a snap of my own meagre silhouette on Instagram. Relating […]

I’m an Asshole (and a Fire Hazard)

Currently in depths of depression slash anxiety, earlier today I was considering slashing my wrists but as per usual, I reconsidered because I don’t have my hair and nails freshly […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations (on Branches)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations (on Clouds)

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Variations. Ben Huberman of WordPress says variations, thinking of music (and cheese). I hear variations, and think of poetry (and permutations). Poetry shall […]

My Week on Instagram

7 More Days, 7 More Instagram Snaps

I’m continuing in my non-challenge of taking and posting a non-photo on Instagram every day. I still haven’t figured out what I’m trying to achieve, but I have patience enough, […]

Getting Tattoo Number Three

The other day I saw a wonderfully fitting comics, which I can’t be bothered locating again, so I’ll retell it without pictures: Getting the first tattoo: Oh, it must be […]

7 Days, 7 Instagram Snaps

I’ve been diligently taking a photo a day since the beginning of the year. It’s not like I’m doing a 365 Project. I’ve completed two and abandoned one two thirds […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: More Weathered

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered. As per request, here’s another weathered snap from my hometown. I guess now is the place where I provide you with details […]

Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered

In response to WP Weekly Photo Challenge: Weathered. I’m fascinated with the American fascination with historical architecture. Where I live, everything is by default ancient, or at least old and […]

So I Was Trying to Cook…
